There’s a new face lurking about Parkway Playhouse … Meet Bobby Abrahamson who is the Stage Manager for this production of A Christmas Carol. His job is to keep all the rehearsals organized and running smoothly. He’s the one who emails to remind cast members of practice, keeps notes during rehearsals and sends out post-rehearsal notes. He is the designated Answerer of All Questions. Sounds like a fun job with a big cast, eh?
But that is what he does, and here’s a bit about who he is.
I have started Stage Managing for shows this past year and I am loving it!I have had a number of parts where I am a silly teenager, a flamboyant king, or narrator. Thus, my favorite part is Adon-Ra in Fight Girl Battle World at North Carolina Stage Company. I was a Space Terrorist and in the second scene I fought my opponents with a Light Saber and then choked an evil muppet.
I was once in a production of A Christmas Carol as Fred briefly and I really enjoyed my memories with the cast. I remember Tiny Tim giving me some M&M’s during one of the performances so I hope to have some great memories with the cast and feel the Christmas spirit.
“Be good to your Stage Manager.”
It is really irritating when it is two days before the first performance and the other person doesn’t know their lines.
My favorite TV show is Parks and Recreation because Leslie Knope is hilarious and all the characters crack me up.
Welcome to the Parkway Playhouse family, Bobby!
